Nikon launch the revolutionary AW1

Nikon have launched a revolutionary new product, the world’s first waterproof/shockproof interchangeable lens camera: the Nikon 1 AW1 compact system camera and two dedicated lenses that can all be used underwater.


Waterproof (to 15 m), shockproof (from heights of up to 2 m), freeze-proof (to -10°C), and fully dustproof, the Nikon 1 AW1 performs regardless of what Mother Nature might have in store. Launching together with two equally stylish water/shock/freeze-proof 1 NIKKOR AW lenses, this system camera captures the best of the action in any environment, and it won’t look out of place at a chic city event either. Its durable, small, stylish design and fast operation means that high-quality photos and movies can be captured literally anywhere.

The quick, precise Nikon 1 advanced hybrid AF (autofocus) system ensures that every picture is spot-on, and every movie looks smooth and natural. The 14.2-megapixel CX-format CMOS sensor offers an ISO range up to 6400 for beautiful low-light detail. The Nikon 1 AW1 enables carefree shooting at its best: With an adventure-proof build and continuous shooting speeds of up to 60 fps, and 15 fps with autofocus, you can capture every step of the action without worrying about the camera getting dusty, wet, or knocked out of your hands.

An irresistible combination of robust functionality, classic minimalist design, and incredibly fast performance, the Nikon 1 AW1 camera and 1 NIKKOR AW lenses ensure you don’t have to compromise on still image or movie quality, let alone style, because you have an active lifestyle.

Launching alongside the camera, the dedicated 1 NIKKOR AW 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lensand 1 NIKKOR AW 10mm f/2.8 wide-angle lens are as stylish and robust as the camera. Water, shock and freeze-proof, these lenses ensure versatility, precision and style wherever you go. On land or underwater, they enable great photos and movies to be captured literally anywhere.

Aside from the new 1 NIKKOR AW lenses, the complete range of regular 1 NIKKOR lenses is compatible with the Nikon 1 AW1.
